Thanks so much for the tutorial! I am so going to try this on m lawn chairs! I might even use the same colors as you did!
Building Adirondack furniture is a time-honored craft. Sturdy and rustic, this furniture can be a beautiful addition to any indoor decor, although it's most often used to set the scene outdoors. There, the furniture is subjected to a lifetime of abuse. Yearly it moves from somewhere hidden away (probably dark and musty winter storage) to front-and-center on the summer stage. Now, hour after hour it is beaten on by intense UV light, drenched in driving rains, then fried again in the summer sun. .
This is also one of the most durable chairs on the market. It owes this to its extra-thick design. Though this thickness is great for the long run, it does add a lot of weight. This chair tips the scales around 44 pounds, which makes it one of the heavier options out there. Of course, this is still light enough to move around easily in comparison to a wooden model. As you would expect from such a durable chair, this one has a very high weight capacity of 400 pounds.
Being a softwood, cypress dents and scratches deeply and easily. It must be oiled and sealed with routine maintenance to enhance longevity outdoors. If you plan on making indoor Adirondack chairs, you can leave your cypress untreated.
I used SOS pads to clean mine first. The chalky residue came right off with hardly any scubbing. It roughed up the finish and the paint adhered well. They are beautiful and you do not have to wear the color on your tush. 🙂
Mahogany is an imported wood and is on the high-end of the price range. Other cheaper woods bear the name but are not true mahogany.
Wood is the traditional choice for Adirondack chairs, going back to the late 1800s. When properly maintained, wood can look gorgeous, and give a classic flair. However, the reality is that keeping your wooden Adirondack chairs in good shape takes work! Sanding, painting, staining, cleaning, patching broken slats, etc. are all painful.

The sloped backrest is unique and makes daytime napping a breeze. It’s like a “permanent recliner!” Thanks to a smart design and supportive back rest, Adirondack chairs are the most comfortable types of outdoor seats you will find.

Just bought four of these type of chair after doing a couple months of research into them (after seeing one for very cheap at Costco). Bought during the Memorial Day sale, buy 3 get one free, with free shipping. That sale seems to be over, but they still have a "special". They're not cheap, but are very comfortable, we like that the version we bought fold up nicely, and they have a relatively very long 20 yr residential warranty. We're expecting them to last for years.
The Trex Outdoor Furniture Cape Cod line of Folding Adirondack chairs is similar in design to the Polywood chairs above, though with a little bit sleepier and more classic design.
